"Written for both experienced and trainee counselors, guided Imagery will be a uniquely useful resource for practitioners and an ideal text for used in counseling and psychotherapy training courses."
`The aim of this clear and engaging book is to facilitate counsellors and clients in working creatively and ethically with client-generated imagery. From an integrative perspective, I expect this text to prove an invaluable guide to this most creative of techniques in the repertoire of interventions for both the trainee and the experienced counsellor' - Therapy Today
Highly interesting and useful for sparking ideas of working.
A great book for beginners
This very readable book explores some imaginative counselling interventions. As well as giving possible guided imagery scripts it also demonstrates how to explore spontaneous imagery brought to the session by the client.
This is a great introduction to guided imagery. The scripts provided make these techniques user friendly and thus easily adapted for use with clients.
This text provides an updated and modern view on GI - very accessible.
interesting book. bringing the body alive chapter was particularly useful for students exploring using imagery in relaxation technques for people with early to moderate dementia
this is an excellent book for experiential work with students especially in personal developemnt groups it provides useful exercises which in turn help link process to self
The authors have explored theory and applied it to real examples of how imagery can be used in an active and creative way. Informed with examples and possible dialogue between client and Counsellor, it helps practitioners with an interest in this area gain confidence in the use of guided imagery.
Good theoretical underpinning.
This book offers practical and creative perspectives on the use of imagery in therapy. As a trainer of an imaginal model for the resolution of trauma, I recognise the benefit of encouraging confidence and flexibility with these techniques...a goal which I think this book supports well.
